Knowing the Early Signs of Abuse is Empowering


The Warning Signs of Abusive Behavior

  • Comes on strong - gets close too fast. An abuser pressures for an exclusive commitment almost immediately.
  • Is excessively possessive. Calls constantly. Wants to be with you all the time – afraid you might meet someone else.
  • Is controlling. Interrogates you intensely – especially if you are late. Insists they go with you or that you get permission to go places or do anything.
  • Has unrealistic expectations. Expects you to meet every need no matter how unreasonable.
  • Isolates you. Tries to cut you off from family and friends – accuses people who are your supporters of causing trouble.
  • Blames others for problems or mistakes.  It's always someone else's fault if anything goes wrong.
  • Is hypersensitive - gets angry easily – rants about the injustice of things that are just part of life.
  • Verbally assaults you. Constantly criticizes you or says blatantly cruel, hurtful things. Degrades you, curses and calls you ugly names – these are a precursor to physical abuse.
  • Threatens you with physical violence. Says, "I'll break your neck" or "I'll kill you," followed by "Everybody talks this way." or "I didn't really mean it." If the verbal abuse has come this far, it's time to get out and get help.
